The man with the superior air was a poetic business man. He generally patronized a small lunchroom near hla office. When he was not selling eggs at wholesale or something, he liked to read verse. His favorite was Tenny son's "Idylls of the King." And be cause he felt that he knew so much about it he thought he would have a little fun with the lunchroom wait resses, in a superior sort of way. It began by naming the girls after the heroines in the poem. His regular waitress was a tall, gaunt person, but somewhat queenly as she bore down on him with a plate of "hash. Her real name was Sadie. - "Sadie," he announced one sight, "hereafter I'm going to call you Guinevere. Mind?" "I tmM wwr." KLt- 'St ress, shifting her gum, "but who's she?"

Happily, however, that fact will not affect the number of eggs your pet hen will lay in the run' of a season. The man who keeps his opinions to himself never has them disputed by lesi intelligent people. The fellow who is false to his truslj kicks mightily when others refuse tOi trust him.
